The Limited Partnership in China
This book provides an in-depth legal examination of limited partnership in the context of China’s venture capital and private equity market. It aims to provide an authoritative and timely evaluation of the Chinese partnership law and limited partnership regime and will be a valuable tool for practitioners who need a readily available source of information on Chinese partnership law and those who wish to understand how the Chinese partnership regime operates and functions. The book explains the essential characteristics of Chinese partnership law and Chinese limited partnership, highlighting difficult and developing areas by examining relevant legislation and recent cases.
In addition to Chinese authorities, it also covers legislation and cases from overseas jurisdictions, such as the UK and the US. New developments such as the amendments to the PRC Partnership Enterprise Law 2007, new legislation and regulations on foreign partnerships and private equity funds are also covered. The book explains the essential areas of Chinese limited partnership such as management and control, duties and liabilities of partners, remedies for limited partners, dissolution, liquidation and taxation. Based on thorough comparative and empirical studies, the book examines existing and potential legal problems under the current law and offers key proposals for practitioners and lawmakers. The empirical problems identified in the book may also guide subsequent discussion and legislation on the limited partnership model and the ongoing debate on new business vehicles.
